In chapter 4, we discussed various types of bonds that form between atoms and / or ions. In all cases, these bonds involve sharing or transfer of valence shell electrons between atoms. In this section, we will explore typical methods for depicting valence shell electrons and chemical bonds, namely Lewis symbols and Lewis structures. Step 1: Calculate the number of valence electrons. Hcn: + = 10 H 3 CCH 3: + = 14 HCCH: + = 10 NH 3: + = 8 step 2. Draw skeleton and connect atoms with single bonds. Remember that H is never a central atom: step 3: Where needed to distribute electrons to terminal atoms: step 4: Where needed to place remaining electrons on the central atom: We can draw the Lewis structure of any covalent molecule by following six steps discussed earlier. In this case, we can condense the last few steps, since not all of them apply. 1. Calculate the number of valence electrons: XeF 2: 8 + = 22XeF 6: 8 + = 50 2. Draw skeleton joining atoms by single bonds. Xenon will be central atom because fluorine cannot be central atom: 3. Distribute remaining electrons. Xef 2: We place three lone pairs of electrons around each F atom, accounting for 12 electrons and giving each F atom 8 electrons. Thus, six electrons remain. These lone pairs must be placed on Xe atom. This is acceptable because Xe atoms have empty valence shell d orbitals and can accommodate more than eight electrons. The Lewis structure of XeF 2 shows two bonding pairs and three lone pairs of electrons around Xe atom: 4. Xef 6: We place three lone pairs of electrons around each F atom, accounting for 36 electrons. Two electrons remain, and this lone pair is place on Xe atom: eight electrons: eight electrons: no electrons Be 2 + eight electrons: no electrons Ga 3 + no electrons Li + eight electrons: O 2: in this case, Lewis structure is inadequate to depict the fact that experimental studies have show two unpaired electrons in each oxygen molecule. H 2 CO: AsF 3: ClNO: SiCl 4: H 3 O +: {matheq}{\text{NH}}_{4}^{+}{endmatheq} {matheq}{\text{BF}}_{4}^{-}{endmatheq} HCCH: ClCN: {matheq}{\text{C}}_{2}^{\text{2+}}{endmatheq} SeF 6: XeF 4: {matheq}{\text{SeCl}}_{3}^{+}:{endmatheq} Cl 2 BBCl 2: 11. Two valence electrons per Pb atom are transferred to cl atoms; resulting Pb 2 + ion has a 6 s 2 valence shell configuration. Two of the valence electrons in HCl molecule are share, and the other six are located on Cl atom as lone pairs of electrons. 13. 15. 17. The Complete Lewis structures are as follow: 19. 100. An 0 - g sample of this compound would contain 85. 7 g C and 14. 3 g H: {matheq}\begin{array}{l}\frac{85.7\text{g}}{12.011{\text{g mol}}^{-1}}=7.14\text{mol C}\ \frac{14.3\text{g}}{1.00794{\text{g mol}}^{-1}}=14.19\text{mol H}\end{array}{endmatheq} this is ratio of 2 H to 1 C, or empirical formula of CH 2 with formula mass of approximately 14. As {matheq}\frac{42}{14}=3,{endmatheq} formula is 3 CH 2 or C 3 H 6. Lewis structure is: 21.

9.1 Lewis Electron Dot Diagrams

Other halogen molecules form bonds like those in chlorine molecule: one single bond between atoms and three lone pairs of electrons per atom. This allows each halogen atom to have a noble gas electron configuration. The tendency of main group atoms to form enough bonds to obtain eight valence electrons is known as the octet rule. The number of bonds that atom can form can often be predicted from the number of electrons needed to reach octet; this is especially true of nonmetals of second period of the periodic table. For example, each atom of group 14 elements has four electrons in its outermost shell and therefore requires four more electrons to reach the octet. These four electrons can be gained by forming four covalent bonds, as illustrated here for carbon in CCl 4 and silicon in SiH 4. Because hydrogen only needs two electrons to fill its valence shell, it is an exception to the octet rule. Transition elements and inner transition elements also do not follow the octet rule: group 15 elements such as nitrogen have five valence electrons in atomic Lewis symbol: one lone pair and three unpaired electrons. To obtain octet, these atoms form three covalent bonds, as in NH 3. Oxygen and other atoms in group 16 obtain octets by forming two covalent bonds: we will also encounter a few molecules that contain central atoms that do not have fill valence shell. Generally, these are molecules with central atoms from groups 2 and 12, outer atoms that are hydrogen, or other atoms that do not form multiple bonds. For example, in the Lewis Structures of beryllium dihydride, BeH 2, and boron trifluoride, BF 3, beryllium and boron atoms each have only four and six electrons, respectively. It is possible to draw a structure with a double bond between boron atom and fluorine atom in BF 3, satisfying the octet rule, but experimental evidence indicates bond lengths are closer to that expected for B - F single bonds. This suggests the best Lewis structure has three B - F single bonds and electron deficient boron. Reactivity of compound is also consistent with electron deficient boron. However, B - F bonds are slightly shorter than what is actually expected for B - F single bonds, indicating that some double bond characters are found in actual molecule. Atoms like boron atom in BF 3, which do not have eight electrons, are very reactive. It readily combines with molecule containing atom with a lone pair of electrons. For example, NH 3 reacts with BF 3 because lone pair of nitrogen can be shared with boron atom: elements in the second period of the periodic table can accommodate only eight electrons in their valence shell orbitals because they have only four valence orbitals.

Single Bonds and Lewis Dots

The simplest covalent bond is formed between two hydrogen atoms. Each hydrogen atom has a single electron, and each needs two electrons for a full outer shell. The hydrogen molecule, {matheq}{H_2}{endmatheq} consists of two hydrogen atoms sharing their two valence electrons. Hydrogen can also form covalent bonds with other atoms. For example, hydrogen and chlorine each need one more electron to achieve noble gas configuration. By sharing valence electrons, stable {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} molecule is form. We will use a simplified representation of covalent bonds know as Lewis structures. These drawings are also known by various other names, including Lewis dot structures or electron dot structures. Each dot in the structure represents one valence electron in the compound. For example, {matheq}{H_2}{endmatheq} could be drawn as {matheq}{H} : {H}{endmatheq} Each dot represents one valence electron, and the fact that they are placed between two atoms means that they share a basic covalent bond. For larger molecules, it can become cumbersome to draw out all of valence electrons, so bonding pair of electrons can also be drawn as straight line. Thus, {matheq}{H_2}{endmatheq} can also be represented as {matheq}{H-H}{endmatheq} If we want to show Lewis structure of {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} we would draw the following: we can see that covalent bond consists of two electrons between {matheq}{H}{endmatheq} and {matheq}{Cl}{endmatheq} {matheq}{H}{endmatheq} has a full outer shell of two electrons and chlorine has a full outer shell of eight electrons. Covalent bonds with other halogens can be written in the same way. Similar types of Lewis structures can be written for other molecules that form covalent bonds. Many compounds that contain {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} and {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} are held together by covalent bonds. The number of covalent bonds an atom will form can generally be predicted by the number of electrons the atom requires to fill its valence shell. For example, oxygen has 6 electrons in its outer shell and needs two more to fill this shell, so it will only form two covalent bonds with other atoms. If we look at water molecule {matheq}{HCl}{endmatheq} we see that the oxygen atom makes two total bonds. As you can see, there are two pairs of electrons not involved in covalent bonding. These unbonded pairs of electrons are know as lone pairs and contribute to the overall shape of the molecule. Similarly, nitrogen needs three electrons to complete its valence shell, so it tends to make three covalent bonds, with one lone pair of non - bonding electrons left over. Again, each of the lines stands for a pair of bonding electrons, and the lone pair of nitrogen is drawn as two dots.

Double and Triple Bonds

In this lesson, you reviewed the basics of the Lewis dot structure. The Lewis dot structure can be represented by either two dots or by line between two atoms when there is chemical bond - two lines for double bond and three lines for triple bond. You learn that to write Lewis structure for compounds, you follow these steps: determine type and number of atoms in molecule. Write Lewis dot structure for each individual atom. Connect atoms by electron pair bonds so that each atom has a full octet. If you have carbon in your molecule, it is always in the middle. Hydrogens are usually on the outside. Double - check your work and make sure every atom has eight electrons and no more.

Salt is a compound composed of two ions - a positively charged ion and a negatively charged ion.S Attraction between two ions forms strong ionic bonds, giving salts a hard and brittle crystalline structure. Salts have other specific properties due to these ionic bonds, including high melting and boiling points, as well as the ability to conduct electricity both in molten form and when dissolved in water. Chemical formulas of salts can often be predicted by finding charge on one ion from its position on periodic table, then making sure the overall charge on salt is zero. When figuring out how many atoms will be needed for each element, just remember the crisscross formula - charge of each element gives you the number of atoms required of other element!

Lesson Summary

Principal energy levels of gold: figure shows the organization of electrons around the nucleus of gold atom. Notice that the first energy level can have only two electrons, while more electrons can fit within give level further out. The number of electrons in each level is listed in the upper right corner of the figure. Notice that the outermost level has only one electron. Lewis dot dragram for Methane: Methane, with molecular formula CH 4, is show. Electrons are color - cod to indicate which atoms they belong to before covalent bonds form, with red representing hydrogen and blue representing carbon. Four covalent bonds are formed so that C has an octet of valence electrons, and each H has two valence electronsone, from the carbon atom and one from one of the hydrogen atoms. Lewis structure of Acetic acid: Acetic acid, CH 3 COOH, can be written out with dots indicating shared electrons, or, preferably, with dashes representing covalent bonds. Notice lone pairs of electrons on oxygen atoms are still on show. The Methyl group carbon atom has six valence electrons from its bonds to hydrogen atoms because carbon is more electronegative than hydrogen. Also, one electron is gained from its bond with other carbon atom because the electron pair in CC bond is split equally.


Representing Valence Electrons in Lewis Symbols

Atoms consist of positively charged nucleus and negatively charged electrons. Electrostatic attraction between them keeps electrons bound to the nucleus so they stay within a certain distance of it. Careful investigations have shown that not all electrons within the atom have the same average position or energy. We say electrons reside at different principal energy levels, and these levels exist at different radii from nucleus and have rules regarding how many electrons they can accommodate. As example, neutral atom of gold contains 79 protons in its nucleus and 79 electrons. The first principal energy level, which is one closest to the nucleus, can hold a maximum of two electrons. The second principal energy level can have 8, third can have 18, and so on, until all 79 electrons have been distribute. The outermost principal energy level is of great interest in chemistry because electrons it holds are furthest away from the nucleus, and therefore are ones most loosely held by its attractive force; larger distance between two charged objects, smaller force they exert on each other. Chemical reactivity of all of the different elements in the periodic table depends on the number of electrons in that last, outermost level, called valence level or valence shell. In the case of gold, there is only one valence electron in its valence level.


The Octet Rule

Other halogen molecules form bonds like those in chlorine molecule: one single bond between atoms and three lone pairs of electrons per atom. This allows each halogen atom to have a noble gas electron configuration. The tendency of main group atoms to form enough bonds to obtain eight valence electrons is known as the octet rule. The number of bonds that atom can form can often be predicted from the number of electrons needed to reach octet; this is especially true of nonmetals OF second period OF periodic table. For example, each atom OF group 14 element has four electrons in its outermost shell and therefore requires four more electrons to reach the octet. These four electrons can be gained by forming four covalent bonds, as illustrated here for carbon in CCl 4 and silicon in SiH 4. Because hydrogen only needs two electrons to fill its valence shell, it is an exception to the octet rule. Transition elements and inner transition elements also do not follow the octet rule: group 15 elements such as nitrogen have five valence electrons in atomic Lewis symbol: one lone pair and three unpaired electrons. To obtain octet, these atoms form three covalent bonds, as in NH 3. Oxygen and other atoms in group 16 obtain octets by forming two covalent bonds:

Lewis Symbols

In Lewis symbol for atom, chemical symbol OF element is write, and valence electrons are represented as dots surrounding it. Only Electrons in valence level are shown using this notation. For example, Lewis symbol OF Carbon depicts C surrounded by 4 valence electrons because Carbon has an electron configuration OF 1s 2 2s 2 2p 2. Electrons that are not in valence level do not show in Lewis symbol. The reason for this is that chemical reactivity of an atom of element is solely determined by the number OF its valence electrons, and not its inner electrons. Lewis symbols for atoms are combined to write Lewis structures for compounds or molecules with bonds between atoms.


Introduction to Lewis Structures for Covalent Molecules

The simplest example to consider is hydrogen, which is the smallest element in periodic table with one proton and one electron. Hydrogen can become stable if it achieves full valence level like the noble gas that is closest to it in periodic table, helium. These are exceptions to the octet rule because they only require 2 electrons to have full valence level. Two h atoms can come together and share each of their electrons to create a covalent bond. Share pair of electrons can be think of as belonging to either atom, and thus each atom now has two electrons at its valence level, like He. Molecule that results is H 2, and it is the most abundant molecule in the universe. Lewis structure of diatomic hydrogen: this is the process through which H 2 molecule is form. Two h atoms, each contributing electron, share a pair of electrons. This is known as single covalent bond. Notice how two electrons can be found in region of space between two atomic nuclei. The Lewis formalism used for H 2 molecule is H: H or HH. The former, know as the Lewis dot diagram, indicates a pair of shared electrons between atomic symbols, while the latter, know as Lewis structure, uses dash to indicate a pair of shared electrons that form a covalent bond. More complicated molecules are depicted this way as well. Lewis dot dragram for Methane: Methane, with molecular formula CH 4, is show. Electrons are color - cod to indicate which atoms they belong to before covalent bonds form, with red representing hydrogen and blue representing carbon. Four covalent bonds are formed so that C has an octet of valence electrons, and each H has two valence electronsone, from the carbon atom and one from one of the hydrogen atoms. Now consider the case of fluorine, which is found in group VII of the periodic table. It therefore has 7 valence electrons and only needs 1 more in order to have an octet. One way that this can happen is if two f atoms make bond, in which each atom provides one electron that can be shared between two atoms. The resulting molecule that is formed is F 2, and its Lewis structure is FF. After a bond has form, each F atom has 6 electrons at its valence level which are not used to form bond. These non - bonding valence electrons are called lone pairs of electrons and should always be indicated in Lewis diagrams.

Glossary

Lewis symbols use dots to visually represent the valence of electrons of an atom. Lewis symbols are diagrams that represent the valence of electrons of an atom. Lewis structures are diagrams that represent valence electrons of atoms within molecule. These Lewis symbols and Lewis structures help visualize valence electrons of atoms and molecules, whether they exist as lone pairs or within bonds. Atoms consist of positively charged nucleus and negatively charged electrons. Electrostatic attraction between them keeps electrons bound to the nucleus so they stay within a certain distance of it. Careful investigations have shown that not all electrons within the atom have the same average position or energy. We say electrons reside at different principal energy levels, and these levels exist at different radii from nucleus and have rules regarding how many electrons they can accommodate. As example, neutral atom of gold contains 79 protons in its nucleus and 79 electrons. The first principal energy level, which is one closest to the nucleus, can hold a maximum of two electrons. The second principal energy level can have 8, third can have 18, and so on, until all 79 electrons have been distribute. The outermost principal energy level is of great interest in chemistry because electrons it holds are furthest away from the nucleus, and therefore are ones most loosely held by its attractive force; larger distance between two charged objects, smaller force they exert on each other. Chemical reactivity of all of the different elements in the periodic table depends on the number of electrons in that last, outermost level, called valence level or valence shell. In the case of gold, there is only one valence electron in its valence level. Atoms gain, lose, or share electrons in their valence level in order to achieve greater stability, or lower energy state. From this perspective, bonds between atoms form so that bond atoms are in a lower energy state compared to when they were by themselves. Atoms can achieve this more stable state by having a valence level which contains as many electrons as they can hold. For the first principal energy level, having two electrons in it is the most stable arrangement, while for all other levels outside of the first, eight electrons are necessary to achieve the most stable state. In Lewis symbol for atom, chemical symbol of an element is write, and valence electrons are represented as dots surrounding it. Only electrons in valence level are shown using this notation. For example, Lewis symbol of carbon depicts C surrounded by 4 valence electrons because carbon has an electron configuration of 1s 2 2s 2 2p 2. Electrons that are not in valence level do not show in Lewis symbol. The reason for this is that chemical reactivity of an atom of element is solely determined by the number of its valence electrons, and not its inner electrons.

Fullerene Chemistry

Fullerene Chemistry Carbon soot has been known to man since prehistoric times, but it was not until fairly recently that the molecular structure of the main component of soot was discover. In 1996, Nobel Prize in Chemistry was awarded to Richard Smalley, Robert Curl, and Harold Kroto for their work in discovering a new form of carbon, buckminsterfullerene molecule. Entire classes of compounds, including spheres and tubes of various shapes, were discovered based on. This type of molecule, called fullerene, shows promise in a variety of applications. Because of their size and shape, fullerenes can encapsulate other molecules, so they have shown potential in various applications from hydrogen storage to target drug delivery systems. They also possess unique electronic and optical properties that have been put to good use in solar powered devices and chemical sensors.


Lewis Structures

For very simple molecules and molecular ions, we can write Lewis structures by merely pairing up unpaired electrons on constituent atoms. See these examples: For more complicated molecules and molecular ions, it is helpful to follow the step - by - step procedure outlined here: determining total number of valence electrons. For cations, subtract one electron for each positive charge. For anions, add one electron for each negative charge. Draw skeleton structure of a molecule or ion, arranging atoms around the central atom. Connect each atom to the central atom with a single bond. Distribute remaining electrons as lone pairs on terminal atoms, completing octet around each atom. Place all remaining electrons on the central atom. Rearrange electrons OF outer atoms to make multiple bonds with central atom in order to obtain octets wherever possible. Let us determine Lewis structures OF, and as example in following this procedure: determine the total number OF valence electrons in molecule or ion. For molecule, we add the number OF valence electrons on each atom in molecule: SiH 4 Si: 4 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 4 + H: 1 valence electron / atom 4 atoms = 4 = 8 valence electrons. For negative ion, we add the number OF valence electrons on atoms to the number OF negative charges on ion: CHO 2 - C: 4 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 4 H: 1 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 1 O: 6 valence electrons / atom 2 & atoms = 12 + 1 additional electron = 18 valence electrons For positive ion, such as, We add number OF valence electrons on atoms in ion and then subtract number OF positive charges on ion from total number OF valence electrons: NO + N: 5 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 5 O: 6 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 6 + - 1 electron = 10 valence electrons Since is neutral molecule, We simply add number OF valence electrons: OF 2 O: 6 valence electrons / atom 1 atom = 6 + F: 7 valence electrons / atom 2 atoms = 14 = 20 valence electrons Draw skeleton structure OF molecule or ion, arranging atoms around central atom and connecting each atom to central atom with single bond. When several arrangements OF atoms are possible, as For, we must use experimental evidence to choose the correct one. In general, less electronegative elements are more likely to be central atoms. In, less electronegative carbon atoms occupy central position with oxygen and hydrogen atoms surrounding them. Other examples include In, In, and In. An exception is that hydrogen is almost never the central atom. Like most electronegative element,ss fluorine also cannot be central atom. Distribute remaining electrons as lone pairs on terminal atoms to complete their valence shells with octet OF electrons.
